bb, thank you for getting this thread going - you beat me to the punch :)

I've attached intel on admission statistics for the AMBA Class of 2012 and the 2-year MBA Class of 2013. These just in from the admissions office. I'm sure they will be posted on the website at some point but here you have them before everyone else. Great job by admissions.

To everyone applying as well as those on the fence, I'm here if you have any questions.

A lot of you have probably already seen this, but I figured I would post it anyway since my previous post on my take on the application evaluation process is not exactly accurate. This is Randall Sawyer's answer to the following question. Take note that this interview was conducted in 2008 and that Randall Sawyer is now the Director of Corporate Relations of MBA@UNC. However, I would assume that the same process is still followed at Johnson.

Quote:
Walk us through the life of an application in your office from an operational standpoint. What happens between the time an applicant clicks ‘submit’ and the time the committee offers a final decision (e.g. how many “reads” does it get, how long is each “read,” who reads it, does the committee convene to discuss it as a group, etc.).


Quote:
I take this aspect very, very seriously. We look at everyone twice – regardless of TOEFL, GMAT, work experience, GPA. There is nothing in your file that indicates that you won’t get read twice, except for an incomplete file.

So basically, say you hit the submit button yesterday. We take your $200 and it gets deposited. When my team came in this morning, we printed out your application and put it on the shelf. We wait for your other materials – we go online and get an official copy of your GMAT score, put your recommendation letters in your file, etc.

When your application is complete, it goes to one of two or three groups. The first read is done by either one of my readers (I have two paid readers), one of my professional team at the associate level or higher, or one of my 50 JAG students. JAG stands for Johnson Admissions Group – a select group of second-year students committed to assisting in the recruiting and evaluation of applicants. Many of them will do a first read.

We look for about 22 different variables associated with your application. One of my readers makes a recommendation – either “yes, interview” or “no” or “can’t decide.” After the first read is done it goes on a separate shelf and one of my professional team takes a second read. If they agree and both people who’ve reviewed the application say yes, we send out an invitation to interview. If they can’t agree we take it to committee. Or we deny.

My committee meets twice a week, for anywhere from 30 minutes to eight hours. It’s a group of eight and we will come to a consensus – it is not a vote – as to whether or not to invite to interview or deny. Once there’s a decision the file goes back to the admissions staff, who will contact the student and invite them to interview. The prospective student gets to pick a slot that fits with their schedule. Once the student is interviewed, the interviewer – one of my team – makes a recommendation: don’t recommend, recommend with reservation, recommend, recommend with confidence, or highly recommend.

As a benchmark, highly recommend is maybe 1 in 50 or 60 applicants. That is literally saying to the committee, “This person is an absolute rock star we have to have them.” Recommend with confidence is a student saying, “Yes, I want this person in class with me next year.” Recommend with reservation is “There’s something that doesn’t click or doesn’t sound right to me.” And don’t recommend is “no way, no how, not a chance.”

We usually get a three- to four-page dossier of the interview with a recommendation. The interviewer picks one of the five designations and then it goes to committee and we talk about that student and decide whether or not to make that offer. I want to make it clear that there is no vote – this is not a voting system. We are going to talk about you and decide whether you are a good fit for Johnson. I think it’s fairly callous to be voting on someone’s future.

Hi guys,

If you have already lost any hopes and got dings at all schools you applied to, you are welcomed to visit this thread the-2011-2012-zero-admit-club-126296.html and share your profiles and experiences.


Dude, I think your post may be a bit preemptive, dont ya think. People are still receiving interview invites, and not trying to think about about going 0-for, no need for the doom-and-gloom. Lets try and keep the positive energy in these threads, for now at least.

Not cool bro

Received an Interview Invite!! Finally!

Just when I'd given up all hopes! :-D

Got a mail with the subject line "Johnson Invite to Interview". But the status on the apply yourself portal still shows "Currently Under Review".

Will it take sometime before it gets updated on the portal?

Well, that sucks for me. I thought submitting a few days early would at least give me the advantage as far as the timing of my app being reviewed.


I noticed that you submitted before your recommendations were complete. I think what happens is your application becomes incomplete on 10/7, then someone from admissions must go in and manually mark it complete after both recommendations are received, causing a delay. In other words, it becomes a manual process rather than an automated process.

I almost did something similiar when I applied to CBS but admissions explained that it was to my benefit to wait for the recommendations for the above reason. Either way I am sure you will hear something soon.

Well.. I was not sure how to go about this as well. I divided the table of contents into main sections and sub section.
The I limited the main sections to 3-5 words.. Under each main section, I has sub 3-8 sections (limited to 1 line).. In all I had 10 main sections (398 words). I didnot try to be creative..(i knew that wouldnt work for me)

That's what I did. I ended up having 8 chapters, with a couple sentences about each one.
400 words, one page, clean layout, good content.
I tried making a real TOC but it just got ridiculous after a certain point.

Hey Folks,

I figured I oughtta do a debrief of my interview at Cornell.
Overall, it was very straight forward and conversational, and I really enjoyed my visit.

Interview Questions
I interviewed on campus with a member of the admissions team. (S)he asked typical interview questions:
Walk me through your resume
Why MBA?
Why Cornell?
Tell me about a time when you...
...[engaged in various team work scenarios]

Impressions of Cornell
Again, I was really impressed with what I saw of Johnson. Every student I spoke with for 30 seconds made me write down their name and email address just in case I had any questions. They were just normal students too, not people who the admissions office had scheduled to participate in an admissions day event. The class I sat in on was very engaging and involved a lot of discussion, even though it wasn't conducted in a "case study" format. I thought Ithaca was beautiful, but that's obviously my personal opinion. I’d put it on par with Charlottesville, except for the climate, of course. Everyone sounded very happy with their internship/job prospects too.

Do's and Do Not's
I'm sure I committed a Faux Pas or two, so I don't intend to sound like a pr*ck when I write this, but I thought I'd share some observations from the other prospectives who were there that day.
-Don't sit in the admissions office if you have free time during your visit day. This indicates that you have no interest in engaging with current students. Hang out in the Atrium, and you'll have a chance to have some great conversations with students.
-Don't repeatedly ask whether Cornell's distance from NYC will make it harder for you to get a job in banking. This makes it sound like you think you're an absolute lock for an IB job and the only thing that could possibly hold you back is the 4 hour drive. I'm sure it's fine to ask, but don't belabor the point.
-Use the Connect with Johnson portal to reach out to some students who are pursuing your field of interest before you interview. It will make you sound more knowledgeable in the interview, prevent you from asking redundant questions, and ideally provide you with people to talk to while you're on campus. This applies to any school, really.
-Pay attention to the email they send about parking arrangements. I didn't and was almost late to the admissions office.

Hopefully that was helpful. I’m not sure if there is any other information of value that I can share, but certainly let me know if you have any questions.

Hey guys,

I had my interview at Johnson yesterday.
Cornell campus is very similar to any Ivy League campus (Princeton, Yale, Tuck).
The interveiw was very relaxed, stress free and conversational.

Interview Questions
I interviewed on campus with a member of the admissions team and it was a blind interview.

Walk me through your resume
What roles have your played at each of your job positions. How did your career progress.
Why MBA?
Why Cornell?
What are your goals?
What kinda companies do you want to work for after getting your MBA.
Tell me about your significant leadership experience.
Tell me about a time you had a conflict.
Tell me 3 things about you that would help the admissions committee (I assumed them to be strengths).
What kinda of impact have you had on an organization you were involved it?
Tell me about a time when you had to take a tough decision.
What other schools have you applied to so far? What schools are you planning to apply?

The interview lasted 50 mins. I attended an admission after my interview, talked to a few current first year students. Everyone I talked to was very friendly and excited to be at Johnson.

As someone else said above, if you are going for an interview on campus, plan on getting there atleast 15-20 mins early. Make sure you stop at the traffic boot to purchase visitor parking (there is one right infront of the Johnson building). The closest parking garage is 2 blocks away and it will take 10 mins to walk from the garage to Sage hall. If you get there early, there will be a lot of current students haning out in the Atrium between their classes, and you will get a chance to interact with them. Everyone I talked to was very welcoming and friendly.

I hope this is helpful for guys who plan to visit Johnson for their interviews. Feel free to email me if you have any more questions.

Thanks Shivam. I haven't yet received my interview date. I received the email on the 10th but couldn't reply as I was traveling without access to email. The initial invite asked for my preference of mode for the interview - skype, phone, alum, or on campus. I replied on the 12th, but still haven't received a response. I guess the weekend came up and probably will see an email tomorrow with the interview date.

As you saw in their email, it is strongly recommended that you visit the campus and have your interview there. One reason behind that is the fact that if you get admitted there, you would be spending 2 years of your life over there. I think it is important to observe the dynamics of a school with your own eyes rather than depend solely on what you hear from your various sources.
Another reason why you might want to visit the campus: if you want to be interviewed by a current student or adcom. My personal experience has been that 2nd year students are easier to have a conversation with than alumni. But this is just my opinion.

Another reason why you might want to visit the campus: if you want to be interviewed by a current student or adcom. My personal experience has been that 2nd year students are easier to have a conversation with than alumni. But this is just my opinion.


Obviously nothing can give you the experience of a school than really visiting the campus and interacting with its community members. Having said that business schools understand that sometime it is not possible for the students, especially internationals, to get the visa in such a short time and plan a visit. It is for these reasons alum interviews are norm everywhere. These interviews are not counted any more or less than that conducted in the campus. Johnson too offers alum interviews in India and other international locations. if you have an interview invite you will probably find the instructions to schedule an interview with the alum otherwise reach out to the adcom and they will help you schedule one.

Good luck!
